donationsThe Human Ecology Foundation depends on the support of private individuals, corporations, and foundations to help students make the world a better place. The HEF will be a good steward of your donation and pledges to use your gift to support students in their dreams to change the lives of others, to provide community service, and to foster sustainability for the planet. The mission of the HEF is to award scholarships to the students whose projects have been selected by our board based on relevancy, advocacy, and potential application to make a difference in the lives of people locally and globally.

Our goal in this our first year is to award ten, $2,500.00 scholarships. These scholarships will be given to students from grade 7 through college, for the sole purpose of use for secondary or higher education. Through your generosity HEF will award scholarships to students who establish a research project and follow the format of “The Human Ecology Research and Writing Guide.” Since Human Ecology is the primary focus of the foundation, the projects involve students seeking possible solutions to human problems through the development of their research project.

Your help at any level will help students whose projects show merit. Listed below are some suggested levels of support. Please contact Mike Carney to personally discuss our mission and your gift.
